Your Guide to Southwestern Native American Pottery
Promoting Potters: Past, Present, & Future
WWW.RAREPOTTERY.INFO is the largest virtual museum on southwestern Native American Pottery. We currently have over 10,000 photographs! This site is designed to promote past, present, and future potters with hope of continuing the pottery making tradition that is currently being threatened on several southwestern reservations.
We have been mentioned in List of Southwestern Pottery Types and Wares by Norman Oppelt, 2008 and the Layman's Field Guide to Ancestral Puebloan Pottery Northern San Juan/Mesa Verde Region by Louis A. Green, 2010.
We have a huge number of followers, made up of collectors, researchers, tourists, and students of archaeology. Some are first time users searching the internet for information on a particular pot that they know nothing about, something left to them by a relative, a gift from a friend, a find at a yard sale, estate sale, or auction. The majority of visitors are from the United States, however we are starting to see more of an interest from around the world, places such as Mexico, Brazil, Argentina, Germany, United Kingdom, and Indonesia.
New content is added to our site almost daily. We just recently started a blog page, not to be used as a chat area, but as a spot for visitors to find out what the most recent additions have been since their last visit. This continued increase in content makes it so viewers visit www.rarepottery.info repeatedly and frequently.
